Tracy Bishara Midwifery ~ Welcome

Tracy Bishara MidwiferyCongratulations! Pregnancy is an amazing time of a woman's life when she becomes part of the miracle of birth. As a midwife I am fortunate to provide midwifery care to  women throughout their pregnancy until the postnatal period.  I aim to support you to have the most positive birthing experience possible. 

Tracy Bishara MidwiferyMidwives offer professional pregnancy and labour support to women and their partners. They are an integral part of the birth team and are dedicated to helping families stay with their birth plan. As a midwife I will be by your side, assisting you and your partner with labour support skills, giving you a variety of ideas and techniques to help labour progress normally with minimal medical intervention.

I am supportive of low risk women birthing at home or Warkworth Birthing Centre and high risk women at North Shore Hospital.

Tracy Bishara MidwiferyWhen you choose your LMC (Lead Maternity Carer) there are some important questions to ask:

I see women for their antenatal appointments at Kate Sheppard Midwifery in Albany. Unit 2A Rosedale Office Park, 331 Rosedale Rd, Albany.  I am more than happy to see women in their home in the Hibiscus Coast.

Tracy Bishara Midwifery My midwifery partner is Lizzie Pike and together we ensure you have 24/7 care.  We support each other during times when I am helping other women in labour, on leave or having a weekend off call. I can provide friendly professional care throughout your pregnancy, your labour and birth and up until four to six weeks after the birth of your baby. You can be confident in knowing that I will listen to you, get to know you as a person and enter into a relationship of care which is partnership based in order to meet all your needs. 

At Kate Sheppard Midwifery, private specialist obstetric shared care is available as an option should you choose to have a specialist obstetrician involved in your pregnancy and during labour and birth.

Midwifery care is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health (provided you meet the Ministry Of Health criteria). The only charge is when you choose to have specialist obstetric care.

I look forward to hearing from you.
